"I feel I’m accepted, not as a freak, but as myself, whoever the hell that is. I’m kind of just finding out. You know, for the first time in a long time I feel that something good is going to come out of my life… and I’m beginning to think that the something good is me."

"Do people ever get over being shy? I think it’s with you for life—like the colour of your eyes." —Marilyn Monroe
Said to W.J. Weatherby for his book, Conversations With Marilyn. The year is between 1960-62. She is photographed by Milton H. Greene, 1955. This really speaks to me, and one of my other favourite quotes since I’m super shy in person. I think shyness is with you for life, too!

"To understand Marilyn best, you have to see her around children. They love her; her whole approach to life has their kind of simplicity and directness." - Arthur Miller.
